Hundreds of homes imperiled as Northern California wildfire spreads

Sugarloaf Fire

22 structures have been destroyed by the fire.

The Pawnee Fire, located northeast of Clearlake Oaks within Lake County, has burned over 14,500 acres, but 73 percent has been contained at the time of writing. Alameda County, Berkeley, Fremont, Oakland, Hayward, San Jose and San Mateo County are among the agencies assisting.

In Sausalito, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, Shell station employee Sergio Garcia told the AP, "The sky is very dark, even in the middle of the day". "It's a little scary".

Smoke from a wildland fire burning Saturday in neighboring Yolo County blanketed northern Solano County and extended into the central portions of the county as crews from across the region were called to the scene. "It looks like a movie".

Due to the erratic wind behaviour, it's heading wherever it wants to head at the moment.

Residents in Nederland on Thursday evening were reporting a strong smell of smoke and seeing haze and ash falling from a fire burning in Grand County, but the Boulder County Sheriff's Office stated that no fires were burning in Boulder County.

On Monday, the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District issued an Air Quality Advisory for the week of July 2. The smoke was expected to linger through Monday and possibly longer.

"So I think this is fairly indicative of what we're going to be seeing more often, and unfortunately it also is a precursor I think for what's going to be a longer fire season", he said.

Authorities said the fire east of Fort Garland was estimated at 83 square miles after unpredictable winds pushed the fire both north and south over the weekend, reports CBS Colorado Springs affiliate KKTV. That was 17 percent more than the 60,000 acres (24,280 hectares) it had burned as of late Monday.

A breakthrough in the fight against the Pawnee Fire.

Only three wildfires in the last 68 years have been larger than the Spring Creek fire. "We recommend people don't set off fireworks around their homes".

"There's a lot of history and memories that go into this cabin", said Lewis, 44, of Magna, Utah.
